Hailing from New York City, a talented filmmaker, Josiah, aka “The Dissenter” leads childhood friends and fellow artists Dorian and Paul to Los Angeles in pursuit of the Hollywood dream. Wielding the artistic powers of writing, directing, acting, stand-up comedy, music, drawing, painting, and graffiti, this team of “Real Artists” battles the “Entertainment Empire” of Hollywood through a satirical graphic novel animation-based reality. In LA, Josiah meets his match in a beautiful feisty young actress named Ayoka, aka “Power Girl.” Backed by her crew of “Bad Girls,” Ayoka and Josiah embark on a series of battles as they seek to create and succeed in Hollywood together. But soon… they are confronted by an even deeper obstacle… life.
